Tulsa International Airport Installs Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Newly Renovated Parking Garage
April 21, 2017 – Tulsa International Airport has completed the installation of two PowerPost Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in its recently expanded parking garage.
The stations are capable of charging up to four electric vehicles at a time. The PowerPost EVSE system is currently in use at several major airports, but this will be the first in Oklahoma. Use of the charging stations is provided free of charge to Tulsa International Airport’s garage parking customers. The stations are capable of recovering a 20-mile commute with 4 hours of charging. With this addition, electric vehicle drivers have the option of driving themselves to the airport without the worry of having adequate charge upon their return.
“We are excited to offer this amenity to our parking customers,” said Mark VanLoh, CEO of Tulsa International Airport. “These additions show our ongoing commitment to be sustainable in the way we serve our community and provide assurance to our customers that their vehicle will be ready to go when they return home.”
The installation of electric vehicle charging stations is the latest of Tulsa International Airport’s green initiatives which aim to improve the environmental friendliness of the facility. Passengers with electric vehicles can find the new charging stations in Row J on Level 1 of the airport parking garage.
